Don't think it would have made a difference tonight. Bama was too strong, too physical, and surprisingly to me- too fast.
I've heard good things about Mettenberger, and yes, picking up Gunner Kiel is a huge get for your Tigers. They should be set at that position for a few years.
Yeah, I don't think any QB would have made much of a difference tonight.
We'll have to see who will be leaving to the NFL and who will be coming back, but either way Alabama will most likely be replacing almost their entire defensive unit. They will still have a ton of talent, but experience in Saban's defense is huge, and they won't have a lot of it. Plus Bama will have to come to Baton Rouge next season. I would have to give LSU the advantage right now.
Great season blowout!!!
